Looking Forward….

Your past has come and gone.

Learn from it, evaluate it…but don’t dwell in it.

Your past is part of you who are, it brought you to this day…TODAY.

You can reinvent yourself however you want.

You have a new day, a new hour to try something different.

It’s never too late to begin.

A New Year is upon us…you can make a fresh start on Jan 1st, but don’t forget you have opportunities to make a fresh start at anytime throughout the year.

Best wishes, health, journeys, adventures and new beginnings for your 2017!

Love and hugs,


Be a Sponge…

Every day challenge yourself to learn something new.
There is a whole world of things, places and interests to explore and investigate.
Let your curiosity turn into wisdom. Don’t allow yourself to get lazy and stagnant!
Return to your inner child like wonder. Absorb the knowledge that is at your finger tips.
What will you explore? How will you grow?
Have fun!
Love and hugs,

Corner of Strong and Powerful…

What corner are you standing at?

I’m at the corner of Strong and Powerful!

I love to workout! Seven days a week…that’s how I roll.

Having a strong body makes me happy.

Having a strong body should make anyone happy.

If you want a strong body, it’s up to you!

You need to work at it. You have choices to make.

To start feeling better, and be more energized…exercise is the key!

No matter where you are, you can begin today to take steps in living a healthier life.

Take the first step, to find yourself on your own corner.

Running and Laughter?

Swimming and Meditation?

The Same, But Different…

I sat next to the running water watching if flow down and over the rocks. The sound of the rushing water provided a calm and peaceful grounding for my being. When I got up to leave, other hikers were coming to take my place.

Sitting on the boulder, looking around at nature, seeing the trees leaves rustling in the gentle breeze and the tall evergreen trees brought an appreciation for all the beauty nature has to offer.

Passing other hikers on the trail for a brief moment…I saw into their souls. I sensed happiness, joy, pain, love, adventure, determination, exhaustion and peace. What did they see in my soul?

The trail connected us on this day, at this specific time. We were traveling the same path. Did we experience the same feelings? Did we share the same appreciation?

We are all the same, but so very different.

Love and hugs,



Repent Your Life…

What are you doing differently today than you did yesterday?

What thoughts are you thinking that you need to change?

What direction is your life headed?

Do you find yourselves in autopilot…sailing through life?

If life is easy, you might find yourself in a rut…doing the same routine each day.

To make changes, you must repent your life.

What makes you happy?

Or are you so unhappy you don’t even know what makes you happy?

Figure it out…

Don’t settle…make changes! REPENT!!!

Love and hugs,


Don’t Quit…

Start with you…

If you really want to love someone, start with you. Love yourself unconditionally. Look into the mirror, into your eyes, and say “I love you!” Accept yourself fully. You are unique and have great purpose in this lifetime.

If you really need to forgive someone, start with you. Forgive yourself for all the thoughts and actions that might not have reflected your true self. Get a sheet of paper, write down the things you are sorry you thought, said or did. Release it all and forgive yourself fully.

If you really want to make a difference, start with you. Work on changing your thoughts. Your thoughts go out to the universe, what you put out there comes back to you. Guard your thoughts, think positive, loving thoughts. The way you think will change the way you live. When you change the way you live you will make a difference in the lives of those around you.

If you really want a  healthier life, start with you. Evaluate your diet, incorporate exercise, and meditation. Stay with it, everyday. Exercise your willpower to make healthy choices. Don’t throw your power away by giving in to cravings, putting exercise off another day or deciding not to quiet your mind because you don’t have time. Make time for you!

If you really want to live on purpose, take action every day. Don’t let a day go by without doing the things you want to do.

Don’t quit….start with YOU!

Love and hugs,
